Why Scrambling To Get Your Daily Tasks Done Can Be a Good Thing

In this episode of The Sell or Die Podcast, we’re discussing the difference between scrambling and rushing, and how scrambling to get your daily tasks done can actually be a good thing. Most people think of scrambling as a negative thing, but it doesn’t have to be negative. Scrambling might mean that you have a lot to get done, but you’re still doing it in a controlled manner. In the episode, we’ll show you how to stop rushing so you can actually get MORE done.

Scrambling vs. Rushing

We all have times where we have way too many daily tasks and it’s difficult to get it all done. Sometimes you may need to scramble to accomplish everything.

A lot of people associate a negative connotation with scrambling, but we don’t think it has to have one. We think of scrambling as still being in control. You’ve got a lot on your plate, but you’re going about accomplishing your daily tasks in a systematic way.

Rushing is what’s NOT helpful. Rushing is messy and sloppy. Rushing leads to mistakes. 

We don’t want you to rush to get your tasks done. Instead, scramble to get things in order so you can go about it systematically.

The importance of prioritizing.

Remember that not everything has to be done right away. If you look at your daily tasks, there are likely ones that are immediate, ones that are due soon, and ones that are due later. Focus on the immediate tasks first.

A lot of people will tell you to focus on the little stuff first so you can get started and give yourself a “win.” We say screw the little stuff! Focus on the big stuff first, and then you can get to the little stuff when you have time at the end of the day.

If you prioritize your tasks, getting everything done will feel much less overwhelming.

Why Scrambling To Get Your Daily Tasks Done Can Be a Good Thing: The Bottomline

You don’t need to rush if you are organized and in control. We encourage you to always prioritize and stay on top of what you need to get done. Then you won’t end up in overwhelming situations!
